A Bugbear Lair

Click to enlarge

 

Small caves are perfect for short “side quests”. You can inhabit them with marauding humanoids, beasts or other creatures, like bugbears in this case. Well, the map was just named after bugbears, but you can use what ever nasty critters you like ūüėČ As an after thought I would actually use owlbears, but that’s just me… ūüôā

The cave has a main entrance hidden behind some big rocks and there’s a small back entrance on the other side of the caves. This could be used as an escape route or for ventilation for example. It should be easy to climb to the small ledge leading to the back entrance.

[Map] The Ghoul Lord’s Dungeon

 

This dungeon can work as a prison or a training facility for gladiators, for example. I wanted to add the creature lair to the map as an a bit more exotic feature that might offer some interesting adventure hooks.

What I had in mind for the lair was that the cavern pit had some foul undead creatures like zombies or ghouls – or something else just as grose like inbred pigs that feast on human flesh. If a prisoner is not co-operative or a gladiator novice does not prove good enough fighter (or is seriously injured), they are fed to the creatures.

Of course a proper ending for an adventure is that someone who needs to be saved is dropped into the lair, and the characters need to fight off the creatures and save the person in trouble at the last moment ūüėČ

[Map] The Mountain Lair

 

There are rumors of a horrible creature that lives in a cave hidden on the cliffsides of a mist covered mountain. It is told that ages ago some kind of cult held its unholy ceremonies in those caves and as a result of their rites the creature was born.

As I added the annotations on the map, I tried to give some adventure hooks, while keeping them still generic enough, so this map would work with modern occult or fantasy settings alike.

I hope you find the map inspiring and fun to play.

[Map] The Goblin Lair

047_goblin_lair-web

Here’s the first actual adventure map we played through with my kids in our D&D5e summer campaign (although, I have feeling that this campaign will be much longer than the notoriously short Finnish summer).

The adventurers went to investigate strange thundering noises and lights coming from a narrow pass in the nearby mountains. What they found was a mostly abandoned goblin lair and strange eerie noises coming from the caverns ob the side of the mountain.

As the three brave heroes (Nadar the Dragonborn Cleric, Damai the Tiefling Ranger and Reyny the Half-elf Rogue) exlored the cavers, they found out that one of the caves lead deep into old ruins inside the mountain.
